McCaskill: Trump budget slashes Medicaid by $1.4 trillion to fund tax breaks for the ultra-wealthy
Millions of Americans, including more than a million Missourians, voted for President Trump because they believed he’d make their lives better.
We all just got a look at President Trump’s proposed budget – and it proves that he has no intention of living up to that promise.
This budget slashes Medicaid funding by more than $1.4 trillion and balloons the federal deficit in order to fund a tax break for the ultra-wealthy.
Seriously?! I've talked to struggling Missourians who depend on the programs that President Trump’s budget eradicates. This budget will destroy families’ lives.
I’m going to keep fighting for our most vulnerable, for our healthcare and for what’s right, no matter what. Really grateful to have you by my side through it all.
